What: A Balboa Practice!

Come practice your Balboa, review stuff from the workshop, exchange moves and ideas with your peers, or fix that trouble-spot. Or just come and dance. That's cool too. The structure is very informal and social dance conventions need not apply: if you want to work with the same person for 30 mins, you can; if you want to bring dance videos to reconstruct moves from, do it. We'll play Bal-friendly music at a variety of tempos, and we won't even kick you out if you Lindy Hop to it (but we do reserve heckling rights ;) ).
Everyone welcome... even if you've never danced a Balboa basic in your life! There will NOT be any formal instruction, but people will be on-hand to provide feedback or assistance if requested. Kind of like office hours.
Swing every Thursday night with the Hawaii Jitterbugs! 8-11pm, $5 cover, FREE beginner lesson included 8-8:30pm.
